RedWater News

The Redfern and Waterloo Neighbourhood Advisory Boards produce a bi-monthly newsletter called RedWater News. RedWater is distributed to every household on the Redfern and Waterloo estates and is now also available by email. An Editorial Committee made up of tenants, the HCAP worker, and the worker from the University of New South Wales Community Development Project produce the newsletter. RedWater News publishes articles of interest to tenants including local tenant initiatives, tenancy issues, tenant profiles, local events and activities. The Editorial Committee would be pleased to accept articles or information on your service, advertisements, photos or any other information relevant to public housing tenants in Redfern and Waterloo.
